Tea simmers in an earthen pot

An uncertain past

begs to be thrown

amidst the doldrums

of adulterated joy

we speak of promises

beyond the horizon

yet we pivot

and let our fears

get the best of us

my hands shake

the tremors

romance insanity

but this is not

a time for anxious thought

these walls

are greener than usual

still fertile to

primitive life

and bright yellow flowers

let’s talk

about our brightest futures

while tea simmers

in an earthen pot.
